Cartons, TetraPak

Cartons are recyclable in San Diego County! Cartons that hold milk, juice, and broth are shipped to a paper mill where they are converted into pulp to make new products.

Single use water bottles

Switching to reusable water bottles can save you some serious cash! For every 150 plastic water bottles you replace you can save about $225! Not to mention it will ensure that plastic water bottles do not end up in our landfills or in our communities.

Pizza boxes

Before recycling pizza boxes, make sure to remove excess food before placing in the blue recycling bin. If the cardboard is stained with grease, tear off the clean portions and recycle only those parts.

Block Styrofoam

Local recycling programs expanded to include clean Styrofoam in the list of items that can be placed in your blue recycling container. This type of Styrofoam can be found in packaging boxes of large products like televisions and computers.

Packing Peanuts

Small packing peanuts belong in your trash bin. Although local recycling programs accept plastic #6, it will not accept Expanded Polystyrene. Instead contact your local shipping store to donate excess packing peanuts.

Waste Free is the way to be!
